Hello friends!!

Today we're introducing ⭐ Activity Feeds :star: - your go-to space for sharing achievements, cheering on friends, and connecting with fellow MyFitnessPal members.

What is an Activity Feed, and how do they work?
Activity Feeds serve as your personalized hub within the MyFitnessPal community. It's where you can post updates, share successes, and interact with others in a supportive environment. When you log in to MyFitnessPal, just navigate to the Community section, and click your profile photo, and you'll find your Activity Feed waiting for you. From there, you can post status updates, share photos of your progress, or congratulate friends on their achievements. Plus, you can see what others in your network are up to, offering a glimpse into the diverse journeys of our community members. Whether you're hitting a new personal best at the gym or simply making smarter food choices, sharing your journey in the Activity Feed allows you to celebrate your progress and inspire others along the way.


How do I make my Community Profile private?
